Here are the letter assignments for the Alphabetolympics. They are final and there wonít be any trading. HOWEVER, you can change your letter by acquiring a dropoutís letter. It kinda defeats the purpose of this tournament but is a clever way to beat the system and probably worth considering if you got a crappy letter.

Also if you must drop out (even though I asked you not to sign up if you canít make the deadline or donít want to deal with a crappy letter) please do it at least two weeks before the deadline. The reason for this is so someone can take your place. There might be other people who want to join this but missed signups, and itís not fair to drop out a few days before the deadline when someone else couldíve taken that spot.

The deadline will be Friday, November 14th at 11:59PM HG-time. So basically you have all day Friday to finish your review and any review submitted between the moment I created this topic and the deadline can be used. This is exactly a month, and if youíre new to this and want to pace yourself this should give you a week and a half to find a game, two weeks to play it, and a week to write the review. If you have any questions about your game being allowed or not or anything else either post them in this topic or send me a private message. Remember that itís better to be safe than sorry, so even if you have the slightest bit of uncertainty youíre probably better off asking me than risking reviewing an invalid title.

There are two judges confirmed: Jerec and a mystery judge (for now at least). We still need one more.

Now on to the letters !

Oh, come on! Have I not written enough A reviews this year?

I wrote one just bloody yesterday!

Awesome, I already know what I'll review. This is certainly better than the letter I had last year, though I made that work so this should be no problem.

Poor Timrod. And Dagoss. And Cairo. Hey, didn't Cairo have Y last year too?

Haha. Ulv got the same letter as I did on my first Alpha contest.

By the time this tourney is over I will have reviewed 25% of all games starting with the letter Y. Fate (or at least Jerec??) doesn't favor me.

Dammit why didn't I make the deadline a week later so I can review Left4Dead?

Oh, well. For being such a common letter 'L' isn't as good as I initially thought it would be but far from the worst. Think I know what game I will review.

I don't think anyone here would complain about an additional week, were you to change the deadline.

Nah, I don't really care that much. If the deadline is pushed back too far people tend to lose interest and forget all about these things.

Actually, I was pushing for my own ulterior motives: An extra week would give me more than three days to play and review my game. Don't worry though, I'll manage.

Wow! U!!! FUCKING THANKS!!!!!

Do you people think I'm dagoss and simply able to pop out an Ultima review on the drop of a hat?!?!? Which he would do if you asked him, considering he loves RPGs of the AD&D Gold Box and Wizardry clans. Me? No.....hell no.....

So, I have no option but to deliver punishment with a review of a game deserving of nothing less than my "best". My best praise for a truly iconic game. My best glorifying adjectives. My best eloquence. Prepare to be devoured by my majestic prose and then spit out as you're deemed unworthy of viewing it!

Ironically, 'S' is generally one of the best letters you can get in a thing like this--and something I would never get--yet I have around 10 games lined up to review in the coming month (games I pretty much have to review, and the sooner the better) with none of them starting with that letter. So even though I should be singing Jerec's praises... I'm not.

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

I just used a random string generator, and I didn't even look at who was assigned each letter, only the numbers. Therefore, no bias. Good luck to all!

Ace, I reckon I probably got the best letter there. Though I might try not to do the obvious one.

GAH! I was one letter away from my dream choice! I'm still going to do Silent Hill to cast off the rust, but now I must go backwards in the Alphabet. Damn you, Venter. Even though you had nothing to do with this, I blindly blame you and now promise your demise!

T, hmm?

Does it count if the game starts with "The"? As in, for example, "The Bard's Tale?"
